I love that you have openly admitted to having 175 unbuilt kits on this thread but are still conducting negotiations on the next one in public...

It's why the kits don't get built.

Kid in the candy store syndrome.

Maybe I should seek help............




Nah

There's a little voyeur in everyone one. I don't see anything wrong with chatting it up with Chip in the thread. Much more interesting for the rest of us and I think enlightening as well. Didn't know CR did custom fuses and having that info out here could very well be beneficial to everyone.

Oh, and as long as you keep good records of how much you purchased your kits for and and possibly what the current market value is, I don't see it as anything other than a diversified portfolio, not a problem.

I didn't realize there was a steep decline in the market value of slime. Whats this turbines thing you speak of? I only speak glider and if it isn't in the glider lexicon,... then you're right, it "ain't worth s**t".

Sounds impressive Paul,

Most of my Heavy Layups are added glass layers, so let me check on the doubled Kevlar.

We'll take it to PM
